Each livraison generally contains nine plates illustrating furnishings from three types of collections, i.e. "sièges" (seat furniture), "meubles" (case furniture), and "tentures" (bed and window hangings). The publication was also issued by subscription, and subscribers could choose whether to receive the plates from all three types of collections, or only those parts they were interested in owning.

Description based on: livr. 23, no. 57-59, 120-125; title-page wanting. Publication information taken from the running captions on the plates.

Publisher varies, sometimes appearing as "D. Guilmard et Bordeaux," "D. Guilmard et Bordeaux Frères," or, during the late nineteenth century, as "E. Maincent."

For more information on the publication history of this periodical, see the introduction to the online version of Le garde meuble written by Cynthia Van Allen Schaffner, on the Smithsonian Institution Libraries website.

The plates for the "meubles" and "tentures" series generally include the scale in mêtres.

Guilmard illustrated many of the plates. Lithographers include A. Cuvillier and A. Raze. The plates were printed by various firms, including: Rigo Frères; J. Rigo et cie; J. Rigo Lebref et cie; Decan et Lebref; and Decan.

The plates issued in livr. 67 and 68 feature furnishings by Jeanselme, Bordeaux, Descartes, Richtaedt, Quignon, and Bertaud displayed at the Exposition nationale des produits de l'industrie agricole et manufacturière in Paris in 1849.
